Along with being an accomplished singer and jazz composer, Dr. Elisa S. Mashal of Laguna Laser Hair Removal & Aesthetics has practiced dermatology medicine for more than 15 years. Within the building's private treatment rooms, she and her team of trained specialists zap away tattoos, unwanted hair, and spider veins using advanced laser technology. The Candela AlexTriVantage and GentleMax laser systems pulse at varying wavelengths to zap every pigment of ink or blemish while stimulating the growth of new, healthy cells.
Dr. Mashal and her staff also conduct microdermabrasions and facials that rejuvenate visages with Rhonda Allison skincare products. To ensure that every client receives expert care, the clinic's technicians keep their skills fresh with continuing education and pop quizzes in the middle of treatments.
Microgenesis is a safe, 60-minute facial treatment designed to beautify all skin types by combining the healing powers of Microdermabrasion (a $60 value) and Laser Genesis (a $175 value) treatments into one targeted, customized facial. A skilled aesthetician uses a fine sand tool to gently exfoliate the skin while suctioning dearly departed skin cells and old muffin crumbs from the face's outer layer. Resist the urge to eat the subsequently applied strawberry-spearmint mask, as it will erase the mask's topical benefits, which include improving skin tone, fixing broken capillaries, and hydrating the skin. Like a metaphor for life, once you think it's all over, a bright light in the form of a laser emerges from the mist to heat the upper dermis. This safe, comfortable method stimulates healthy collagen, reduces the appearance of pores, decreases wrinkles, and tightens loose hinges. The strawberry-spearmint Microgenesis process treats uneven skin tone and diffuses redness, leaving skin as silky as a dolphin torpedo.

The state-certified medical-laser personnel at AZ Laser Skin Rejuvenation Center?which counts a board-certified doctor and registered nurse among its staff?use FDA-approved Candela GentleYag laser technology and dermal fillers in their quest to help beauty blossom and flourish. Laser hair- and vein-reduction treatments reinvent the skin's appearance, and crystal microdermabrasion sweeps away dead skin cells to make room for the radiant complexion waiting just below.

Few women enjoy climbing out of a cozy bed to blearily begin their daily beauty regimen. Licensed medical aesthetician Andrea Sandoval helps clients reclaim their REM hours with her menu of permanent-makeup services. Using a blend of cosmetic pigments crafted from natural ingredients, Andrea carefully applies deft shades to the dermal layer of the skin to create makeup that won’t rub away when swimming, sleeping, or checking to see if the water hose is clogged. She can enhance brows to add definition to the face’s overall appearance, add a lush darkness to lash lines, or emphasize lips’ plumpness. Andrea can also blend the natural pigments to match skin tone, seamlessly masking complexion imperfections once and for all.
X Tattoo is comprised of laser technicians and doctors who generously volunteer their time to help patients get rid of unwanted tattoos. This helps keep the cost of the service low for customers; instead of payment, the doctors take only satisfaction, knowing they're helping clients get a fresh start, free from tattoos that may make job searches difficult.
Using a Fotona QX laser machine, the doctors and techs banish tattoos layer-by-layer in sessions that typically last 5- to 15-minutes. The laser breaks up the ink and also triggers the body's natural healing mechanism, which goes to work producing a new layer of skin. Over time, the tattoo gets lighter and lighter as new layers of skin appear and broken-up pigments are absorbed and disposed of naturally by the body. The number of treatments needed varies according to the size of the tattoo, but sessions are typically scheduled six weeks apart for best results.
